A bit of a slattern

‘Oh fancy!’-grade Beaujolais. I know some people who have raved about this wine, I hope it is nice.

I’m surprised by how dark it is. It has quite a lot of cherry fruit on the nose, and is surprisingly oaky too. It seems quite big. The palate has some fruit, but is oddly heavy and dull. There is not enough acidity and there is really not enough tannin to make this anything over than an overblown tart of a wine. Yesterday’s Tandem was better.
